No, it won't hurt your engine. There are computers now that can predict when to fire a spark plug to reduce ping. It is not a good thing though, you will get worse gas mileage and cause greater emmisions. Better to put high octane in there.

Yes you can use premium gasoline in unleaded because premium gasoline is also unleaded. The only reason it is called premium gasoline is because it has a higher octance then regular unleaded. Regular unleaded has an octane rating of 87 and premium has an octane rating of 92. Premium gasoline burns slower then regualr gas because it has a higher octane rating.


When you mix regular unleaded fuel and unleaded plus fuel in a gas tank it results in a mixture of fuel with an octane rating higher that regular unleaded fuel but lower than the octane rating of unleaded plus fuel.
